CIT ( C O N T ’ D . )  Worked with entire Network Group to develop, test, implement new network infrastructure. 'Access' switches which feed 'Distribution' switches which feed 'Core' switches which have connections to network router interfaces.  Coordinated port assignments and cabling for D/C access switches for servers, migrations off old switches to 6509’s, setup of 'backup switches', and setup of 'dual NIC' switches.  Migrated all access switches (closet switches) from 5500 to 6506/6509’s which included complete re cabling of all switches.  Worked with Network group to implement Riverbed 'Steelhead' network optimization units which drastically improved response time.  Utilized Openview/NNM, developed monitoring of all devices in network, which included Emails sent on any failures of interfaces on routers/switches, 'outages' files which were loaded to server share for documentation and review for patterns in failures.  Enhanced network monitoring to include Event Correlation to eliminate redundant messages and implemented paging on Node Down / Up (router/switch down/up) to Network On-Call personnel.  Worked with Windows Server group to setup VM Trunks, Virtual, and SCON Connections and Failover redundancy between 2 primary 6509 switches. MAINFRAME  Configured all Mainframe Printing using VPS/IP, DRS, and LRS.  Updated TCPIP with LU Pools for reference to LUMAP to logappl TN3270 sessions to CICS production regions.  Made changes to TCPIP to support 2000+ LU's on each LPAR for conversion of TN3270 connectivity from CIP router to GB adapters.  Tested and implemented all Vtam, NCP, TCPIP maintenance.  Provided support of FTP, TN3270 to mainframe via CIP Router and OSA adapters.  Supported Connect Direct on mainframe for file transfer which included coordination of changes with Advanced Tech (Firewall) group. All connections through Partner Router forwarded to Firewall and had IP addresses natted.  Developed, tested, and implemented Connect Direct procs for batch jobs to transfer files to / from Partner sites.  Participated in Disaster Recovery testing for network recovery on Mainframe and Wan remote sites.
